TD-College’s intense, production-based
curriculum is designed by battle-hardened industry veterans and is
based on years of experience in the high-end visual effects industry.
Advanced courses (so called “Production Techniques”) explain in detail

encountered and how they were solved. All course material consists of

What makes TD-College (TDC) different from other colleges and online schools?
Four major differences separate TDC from other learning institutions.
(1) Our course material. TD-College’s curriculum has been engineered by
industry veterans and is based on years of experience in the high-end
CG industry. Our courses have real production value, because they are written by people who are in production, about
production. TD-College do not offer DVD’s that quickly browse over
attributes; instead we offer applicable, real-world courses that show
how the tools really are used in high-end VFX production. TD-College
does not offer demo-perfect tutorials where everything
magically works, because real production is never like that. We offer
hard-core, real-life techniques that go beyond the ability of the
standard, off-the-shelf tools. We offer courses that violently shatter
the out-of-the-box software. All this, so we can show the student how
to patch it up and make it work anyway, because that is what production
(2) Our method of teaching. At TD-College, we use a personal mentor system.
This system pairs our students with their mentors providing 1-on-1
interaction, feedback and critique. This means that each individual
student will receive personal training from artists from major studios like ILM, Imageworks, Disney and Digital Domain.
Aside from scheduled classes, Q&A and 1-on-1 sessions, mentors are
readily available to answer any questions the student might have; and will
hence personally guide the student through the entire learning process.
(3) Our mentors.
TD-College’s mentors are handpicked, active
professionals working in the high-end CG industry. All our mentors
have at least 5 years experience in the feature film ndustry
and played leading roles in recent blockbusters such as Spiderman,
Bolt, Watchmen, Batman Begins, Monsters versus Aliens and many more.
(if any) universities and/or animation schools have a staff with an
impressive resume like ours.
(4) TD-College is completely online,
yet offers personal interaction with mentors and fellow-students. This
means: no relocation costs, no commuting, no additional rent. You can
participate in all our courses from in the comfort of your own living
room, no matter where in the world your are located; and yet have
personal interaction with the top-talent from studios VFX centers like
Hollywood and London.
